April 2015 Nepal Earthquake: Sodom and Gomorrah Effect


Is the April 2015 Nepal earthquake and its aftershocks the Sodom and Gomorrah effect of same-sex relationship and idolatry? What is the status of said issues in Nepal for it to deserve the Sodom and Gomorrah like disasters? And in terms of disasters, how are the incidents related to the Philippine disasters?

Is there peace after the earthquake?

Last April 25,2015, Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake killing at least 8,000 people. Major aftershocks , e.g,  April 26, May 1, and May 12 aftershocks, and avalanches were noted, which resulted to at least 117 more deaths in Nepal.

Wikipedia.org reported:

“Several of the churches in the Kathmandu valley were destroyed. As Saturday is the principal day of Christian worship in Nepal, 500 people are reported to have died in the collapses.[99][100]”.

Several pagodas on Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, collapsed,[25] as did the Dharahara tower, built in 1832; the collapse ofthe latter structure killed at least 180 people,[101][102][103][104] Manakamana Temple in Gorkha was also destroyed. The northern side of Janaki Mandir in Janakpur was reported to have been damaged.[105] Several temples, including Kasthamandap, Panchtale temple, the top levels of the nine-story Basantapur Durbar, the Dasa Avtar temple and two dewals located behind the Shiva Parvati temple were demolished by the quake. Some other monuments, including the Kumari Temple and the Taleju Bhawani Temple partially collapsed.[106][107]

The top of the Jaya Bageshwari Temple in Gaushala and some parts of the Pashupatinath Temple, Swyambhunath, Boudhanath Stupa, Ratna Mandir, inside Rani Pokhari, and Durbar High School have been destroyed.[108]

In Patan, the Char Narayan Mandir, the statue of Yog Narendra Malla, a pati inside Patan Durbar Square, the Taleju Temple, the Hari Shankar, Uma Maheshwar Temple and the Machhindranath Temple in Bungamati were destroyed. In Tripureshwar, the Kal Mochan Ghat, a temple inspired by Mughal architecture, was completely destroyed and the nearby Tripura Sundari also suffered significant damage. In Bhaktapur, several monuments, including the Fasi Deva temple, the Chardham temple and the 17th century Vatsala Durga Temple, were fully or partially destroyed.[108]”

“According to the USGS, the temblor was caused by a sudden thrust, or release of built-up stress, along the major fault line where the Indian Plate, carrying India, is slowly diving underneath the Eurasian Plate, carrying much of Europe and Asia.[24]”

Geologically, the Nepal earthquake is explained by the diving of the Indian plate underneath the Eurasian plate brought by the release of built-up stress along the fault line. This is according to USGS. However, another type of stress-the spiritual stress, has to be considered to explain the physical built-up stress along the fault line. Unfortunately, this is being taken for granted by people.

More specifically, this spiritual stress is based on Leviticus 18:22, stating that: “22No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that.(TEV)” and Exodus 20:4, stating that: You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth”.

Based on the above verses, could Nepal be protected by its Christian beliefs and beliefs on its statues which are contained in the destroyed temples? Of course, the answer is explicitly ‘No’. It is because Nepal is being known today as the first Asian country to  consider the passage of same-sex marriage legislation in addition to idolatry being practiced in these temples.

Just like in the US, same-sex marriage started in the judiciary in Nepal, when “on November 17, 2008, Nepal’s Supreme Court ruled in favor of laws to guarantee full rights to LGBT people, and all gender minorities must be defined as “natural persons” under the law; this included the right to marry. “This is a landmark decision for the sexual minorities and we welcome it,” said Sunil Babu Pant, Nepal‘s first publicly gay lawmaker and a leading gay rights activist in South Asia.[1] The court asked the government to form a committee to study same sex partnership laws in other countries and mandated that the new law not discriminate against sexual minorities, including cross-dressing and transgender people.[2][3][4][5]

On March 22, 2009, Pant said in an interview with the Indo-Asian News Service that “Though the court has approved of same sex marriage, the government is yet to enact a law,” signaling that while a same-sex marriage bill has been ordered by the Supreme Court, it has yet to be drafted or voted on, much less legislated.[6] In June, 2009, Pant said the process has just started. “Nepal is going through transition and everything seems to move slowly. The seven-member committee has formed and just started working to study same-sex marriage bills in other countries. Hopefully they will draft the suggestion to make same-sex marriage law soon and give it to the Government to approve.” [7]

Several sources are reporting that same-sex marriage and protections for sexual minorities will be included in the new Nepalese constitution being drafted.[8][9]

Nepal currently has the Interim Constitution. The Interim Constitution provides for a Constituent Assembly, which is charged with writing Nepal’s permanent constitution. The CA is now in the process of preparing its first draft. Under the terms of the Interim Constitution, the new constitution was to be promulgated by November 30, 2011,[10] but a final six month extension was granted just before this deadline bringing the date to May 31, 2012.[11]

Negotiations on the new constitution failed and the Prime Minister dissolved the Constituent Assembly on May 28, 2012 in preparations for new elections.[12][13] As a result, the future of same-sex marriage is uncertain.

Constituent Assembly elections were held on 19 November 2013.[14] The vote was repeatedly delayed,[15] having previously been planned for 22 November 2012 following the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly on 27 May 2012, but it was put off by the election commission.[16] On 10 February 2014 Sushil Koirala was elected as prime minister with a large majority, breaking the political deadlock and opening the way the for the constitution to be finalised.[17]

In January 2014, Chaitanya Mishra, member of the committee formed to study international laws on same-sex marriage and prepare the report for the government on the matter, stated that the work on the report has been completed, except for a summary to be drafted by the chairman of the committee. The chairman Laxmi Raj Pathak promised to submit the report to the government within a month, but said that the cabinet is not interested in a matter. Bhumika Shrestha of Blue Diamond Society has not ruled out the possibility of another lawsuit with the Supreme Court.[18]

In August 2014, the Associated Press reported that the committee had decided to recommend the legalization of same-sex marriage.[19] The committee submitted its report to the government on 9 February 2015.[20][21]

In August 2014, Narahari Acharya, the country’s Minister of Law, Justice, Constituent Assembly and Parliamentary Affairs, stated that his ministry will present the bill to legalize same-sex marriage. If the parliament passed the bill it would make Nepal the first in Asia to allow such marriages.[22]

But unknown to the public, Nepal is merely second to the Philippines in terms of magnitude and as to when same-sex marriage was considered to be officially legislated.

In the Philippines, same-sex relationship is officially adopted and protected through the Reproductive Health (RH) law or R.A 10354, which was passed by the Philippine Senate and the House of Representatives on December 19, 2012. It was urgently signed into law by President Benigno Aquino III last December 21, 2012.

Immediately above issue in the Philippines were discussed in the articles as follows:

When the RH Law was about to be passed in both houses of Congress, Philippines suffered from  Typhoon Pablo in 2012. After it became a law, the country suffered from Sabah crisis followed by  rebellion in Zamboanga City. Finally, it was hit by October 13, 2013 Cebu-Bohol earthquake and Typhoon Yolanda on November 8, 2013 with 222 reported dead and 8 missing and about 6,193 casualties and 1061 missing, respectively, while Nepal suffered the April 27, 2015 earthquake with about 5,000 casualties and it continues .

The Philippines was not obvious in its approach in its legislative effort to legally adopt same-sex relationship, while Nepal was too obvious to replicate the legislative agenda of President Barrack Obama, who was the first US President to publicly declare support for the legislation last May 9, 2012. However, Philippines is much bolder by passing the same-sex relationship through Congress, without passing through the Judiciary.

In short, same-sex marriage in Nepal, just like the same-sex relationship that is being incorporated in the Philippine law, had aggravated the idolatrous acts in these two (2) countries, thus, the consequences.
